We went to Poth, Texas just a hop, skip, and a jump east of us to buy mineral tubs for the cattle. It's such a nice drive over as they get more rain then we do which makes the grass greener. We see large ranches and some pretty houses. One house in particular I like is built like a large red barn. From the highway I can see it has a large screened in porch on one corner of the back. being from a long line of porch sitters I can appreciate the size and the screen to keep out mesquitoes, june bugs and any other bugs. One large ranch has a row of flag poles on either side of the gate. I've been told movie stars used to come here to buy cattle. We pass a large dairy that used to give tours in a little bus and had a restaurant for lunch. I never made it there on a day trip and now the tour and restaurant part have closed up. Guess it wasn't profitable. Poth must have had a rain as recently as last night as there were puddles on their parking lot. It is amazing how close that town is to us and how much more rain they get then we do. We took the tubs out and unloaded them. Two cows spotted them right away and was able to beat the others to them. After we finished with that we went the long way home to check out how bad the fire had actually been yesterday. It burned quite a bit of land. Bad at the time but the grass and weeds will come back greener eventually. The houses were safe but I'm sure the people who live there was sweating it out. From the looks of things the fire had started on what used to be John's place and burned to the road and the wind picked up the sparks and blew them across the road. Lots of fence post lost. On the way home I was able to check out a tiny cemetary I've been wanting to. It is near a road but was always grown up with sticky brush and I couldn't tell how many graves were there. Some nice soul or souls has cleaned out just around the graves from the road. We stopped and went to the fence so I could take a picture of the graves (gotta wait, old fashioned camera here). There were three but we couldn't read any dates and if I had climbed the fence I would have been trespassing. The names looked to be hispanic. Very interesting stuff.
